ONLY LOVE by Cassandra Alls

This poem was inspired 
after reuniting with an old friend after 20 years.

 It was a beautiful reminder that no matter the time, distance, circumstance or beliefs, love is ever present. Our minds may forget but our soul remembers the connections that never fade. 
We are all connected in the most powerful energy of the Universe: 
We are united and connected in Love.
Only Love
We’ve been connected all along, through many lifetimes and light years.  
You've found me in each one, flying through the Universe with only your soul as radar.
You don’t know where you are going, but your heart does. 
When you reach your destination your heart, your soul, your Spirit explode with the energy that remembers. 
There is a knowing even if the mind fights it. The Spirit is stronger, but you will not listen.
We live in an illusion fighting through the distractions, ignoring the messages that eat away at our being. Pay attention my Love; it’s real, it never ends.
 Love is eternal.
In silence you found me. In the darkness I saw your eyes open and connect with mine, as if we were there again. In that place where no words exist, but the soul hears the message.
Be with me, if only in your heart and remember.
 Remember that there is no time, there is no place, there is only now and only Love.

  1. I really enjoyed the theme in your poem, Cassandra! That invisible thread of love connecting us all, even while apart from one another. Your poem is so sweet and mystical at the same time, and your softly spoken narrative of it is so soothing! It's always a treat to hear the voices of the poetesses I feature here on my poetry blog. It gives the experience of the poem a whole other dimension, which I really delight in. Thank you again for sharing this intimate vista into your heart, and I hope you will feel inspired to share more with us in the future. Happy to have you here!

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held

EDITOR'S NOTE:

This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.


Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Depression
Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
